Kotaku 'Shop Contest: Don't Need A Game To Make Mario Levels: Winner!

You can’t make this stage in Super Mario Maker.

In honor of this week’s release of Nintendo Wii U Mario creation tool, last week I tasked our image-manipulation experts to demonstrate what sort of Mario we could make without a $60 game. They certainly rose to the occasion.

And while the brave and valorous Hundredgunner takes home top honors this week with his nostalgia-inducing visit to the old Pipes screensaver, those recieving slightly lesser honors are sights to see as well.

Seriously.....

WHY!!!!!

Why isn’t this in the game?!?!
I wanted a mountain of shyguys that dig their way down to mario as he tries to cross a narrow log of death.

We also need Mario galaxy and 3D world. OMG that would be awesome^^
And Rosalina... Seriously, needs some Rosalina in the game.

On another note, wouldn’t it be awesome if they made a mario kart maker?
